Support binary file upload to blob storage for Python
We need to upload media data from our IoT edge devices and the Python SDK only supports txt upload. Please add binary support. Can you give an estimate on the availability of this?
Hi there, this is indeed a limitation on the Python SDK due to the limitation from C SDK.
We are working on a native Python SDK that will remove this restriction. I don’t have a clear ETA, but we will be public previewing the native version in the next few months.
If you are waiting on this feature for production, please let me know.
Sorry about that. Can you let me know what your timeline for production is? You should be able to view a preview version of native Python SDK shortly - we haven't finalized the GA date, but should be first half of 2019.
Yes, I am awaiting this feature for production. Although my confidence that we will get this isn't very high. I can't remember how often I read here on user voice "We are working on.... - I don't have a clear ETA....". Some of these posts are over 2!!! years old and the feature isn't there....
